Hi folks! I’m back again with another slightly morbid chart!! Yet again, this is for my Digital History Course… oh well! I had some difficulties making this chart, even as easy as pie charts are to make. With me, that’s to be expected, though!
For this pie chart, I used data about the “Fair Hill Burial Ground Interments” found on Scholarly Commons’ “Magazine of Early American Datasets.” I pulled from the Excel spreadsheet the names of the people who were buried in the cemetery from 1871 through 1918. From there, I assumed genders, (I am truly sorry, it was for the sake of this project), and collected information on how many men and women were buried there during that time line.
As the pie chart shows, over twice the amount of women than men were buried at the Fair Hill cemetery between the years 1871 and 1918. I don’t think that there are any questions to be addressed that this pie chart might bring up, as I think it gets the point across quite well.
I know pie charts are not very useful and they should be used sparingly, but I felt that this data was best represented by a pie chart. My mind will not be changed, thank you for reading, and have a good day!
